I took the test today . My inputs are :

1. Test was indeed long
2. There were many wrong questions : Two of them asked "Which two are correct statements" and it was written below "to select three answers" , One of the question had three right answers but only two were allowed to be selected . Wonder how Sun is going to evaluate me on that !
3. WSIT/WCF is asked in some depth .
4. Many questions seemed confusing and I could see many right answers (maybe I was wrong). But too many answers were subjective.
5. Too much stress on Design Architecture and Security.



Hope I pass it.

I got same issue, In question says select two. But at the end system not accepting as completed, once slect 3 option then its fine. It's realy stupit bugs.

And there are too many scenario base questions, i was almost slept by reading scenario ,



Most of the scenario, you can't exactlty say which is correct and which is wrong.

How much is too much?
  • EJBs are component level constructs. Services are supposed to work on a coarser level of granularity often equivalent to entire applications. Design is important at that level.
  • A service rarely exists rarely in isolation. It will usually exist in a "community" of services that manifest the business's processes. (Architecture)
  • A big feature of SOAP web services is interoperability across trust boundaries (Security)

  • So these are indeed important topics - moreso than what you would expect in SCWCD or SCBCD.

    This question should be either cancelled or fixed in the final exam version.
